San Tan Valley, Arizona – What You Need to Know

San Tan Valley, AZ

San Tan Valley is suburban to Phoenix, located in the unincorporated area between the towns of Queen Creek to the north and west, and Florence to the south.

San Tan Valley is an unincorporated area suburban to Phoenix. It lies Southeast of Phoenix, in Pinal County. Now, it’s not that incorporation hasn’t been attempted, but this is the Wild West and some folks like it just that way it is. As of 2015, all attempts to incorporate the town have failed. Eventually, it’s bound to happen.

In the meantime, San Tan Valley has experienced amazing growth. It was booming back in the early 2000’s when the area offered homes at super affordable prices. What’s a little extra gas money when you can have a great new home, right? But then, our little “crash” happened in 2007 and development in the area ground to a halt. Since 2010, development has steadily increased, with new home developments cranking out new, affordable homes, and much-needed infrastructure projects being completed. Easily accessible grocery stores, eateries, a regional hospital, and a Walmart have eliminated the 10-mile mile runs, while nearby Queen Creek offers a wide mix of shopping restaurants, even a Harkins movie theatre.

Banner Ironwood Medical Center

Banner Ironwood Medical Center is an 80-acre campus offering state-of-the-art hospital and other associated services to San Tan Valley.

San Tan Valley covers a wide-spread remote area, bordered by Queen Creek and Florence. To the west is the beautiful San Tan Regional Park and to the east, across miles of undeveloped desert are views of the Superstitions. Private water companies, such as Johnson Utility Company, supply water to most of the residential areas. Many homes outside of the master-planned communities are serviced by septic systems, wells, and some areas used hauled water. Emergency services are typically by subscription through Rural Metro.

There is some confusion between Queen Creek and San Tan Valley as the entire area was referred to as Queen Creek up until 2007. Wondering which is which? Check here…
